"I often regretted not attending a fine arts program at university. This course fills in what I thought that I was missing. It is exactly what I have been looking for and I don't have to leave my home, and I can work at my own pace... My only regret is that I didn't come across this program sooner."

Sequence of Study

All our feedback member start with Intro to Classical Drawing, which prepares artists of all levels for starting their first Bargue plate and cast drawing. The greatest painters of art history, from Michelangelo through Sargent, considered classical drawing to be the foundation of their training.

Some painters may feel reluctant to focus on drawing. But students who devote six months exclusively to the drawing courses find that when they return to painting their painting abilities have advanced significantly, far more so than if they had devoted that time to painting alone.


For those new to art classes, classical drawing is an excellent foundation for embarking on a lifelong study of art.

Length of Study
Students and artists of all levels see dramatic improvement within the first two months of study due to the rigorous and precise nature of this classical program.


For those who can devote 10-20 hours per week year-round, this is a 2-year atelier program. The drawing courses can be completed in about a year, and the painting courses an additional year. Many of our students extend their enrollment for well beyond two years, for ongoing development and mentorship.
